What our EMS members think:

"EMS has been an invaluable element in establishing a professional outlook amongst the students at Plymouth Business School. The access to the online books and ejournals has been widely appreciated by the final year undergraduates carrying out research-based coursework and honours projects." Mike Turner FIH, Lecturer Foodservice Systems, University of Plymouth, UK

"Electronic resources are not only a solution to difficult accessibility, space issues or other physical matters; they are tomorrow's business models. Knowledge is no longer embodied in a purely physical form: it is accessible by more professionals in more ways than ever." Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland
